A Little Disconcerting

Was sitting here minding my own business when notification went off for my email. I was a little befuddled because it is after 6. No one emails me after 6.

I checked the email and noticed it was from the school division with red and urgent vibes coming off the page. I clicked it open and began to read.

Last week one of the middle schools was closed to in-person learning because a threat had been called in against staff and students. Students had a day of classes at home.

Thursday both the same middle school here as well as the one in a neighboring community closed. Again threats being made against staff and students.

Thursday evening threats were again made against the middle school and now the high school. As a precaution classes are closed to in person learning. Cold weather class protocols are in effect. Meaning the kids still have to check in and get their assignments.

This is not funny. Not funny in the least.

Last week’s call was traced to a number in the states. Have not read anything yet on if these calls have been traced.

I am glad the schools and the school division are on top of the situation and keeping our children and their teachers safe. It is just not something you think of when you think about my city. It truly is disconcerting.

It’s Been Awhile

T wandered out and peered into the fridge. Then opened the freezer. Looked at me and asked what we were having for dinner.

He spent 3 hours yesterday doing homework. And has more yet to do. He might not be happy with me but hey I am not the one who should be doing the work.

At one point I began to say something to him and he interrupted me to say he already knew what I was going to say to him. So I said ok what am I going to say?

He responded with how he brought this on himself. And while it proves he listens to me (or I use the phrase way too often) it was not in fact what I was going to say. I wanted to remind him that homework and completing any and all school work is a responsibility. If he cannot do this then he is not responsible enough to have a job. And he really wants a job.

First idea for supper was salmon when I realized we had not had spaghetti in a very long time. So spaghetti it was. With cheese buns. And homemade garlic margarine.

T helped with the buns. Got the plates ready. Supper was a roaring success. T even helped with the clean up. But I am still not helping with his homework. 🤪🤪
